Between Iron And Silver

Stability with a lustrous shine
A hint of preciousness
Coursing through the stuff of life

Common as folks, rare as star shadows
Forged firmly in the flames of right
Cast into finery, befitting jewels

You are found between iron and silver,
Strong, stable, and beautiful

Inspired by a line in Hannibal, by Thomas Harris: “The most stable elements, Clarice, appear in the middle of the periodic table, roughly between iron and silver. Between iron and silver. That is appropriate for you, I think. “

If Beauty Was Earned

If beauty was earned by caring,
you could not be more beautiful.
If beauty was earned by strength of spirit,
you could not be more beautiful.
If beauty was earned by generosity,
you could not be more beautiful.
If beauty was earned by quiet introspection,
you could not be more beautiful.
If beauty was earned by joy,
you could not be more beautiful.
If beauty was earned by unselfish love,
you could not be more beautiful.
If beauty was earned by the light behind your eyes,
you could not be more beautiful to me.
